Darby Beach Walk (Wilsons Promontory Marine Park, Wilsons Promontory National Park)

Beginning at Darby River Carpark, a sandy track follows Darby River as it winds its way to the sea. The small exposed beach is embraced at either end by rocky headlands and ancient dunes and its a great place to see shore birds.

This easy Grade 2 track is 1.1 km, 20 minutes one way.

Visitor Tips: This beach is subject to strong currents and surf and the beach is not patrolled. Do not climb the fragile sand dunes and unstable sandstone cliffs. Toilets are available at the Darby River Carpark.
